OPENLY-gay actor and activist Stephen Fry announced this week he would be closing down his Twitter account due to safety concerns for a month until December.
While Fry does not specify in his tweet (below) what the safety concerns are, he mentioned to his 7.84 million followers that he was filming in a place where “it is safest not to tweet”.
The tweet ignited speculation that Fry would be somehow involved in the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens film, or that he was heading somewhere that has anti-gay laws in place.
